FAQs for the 5th ChanRobles Internet Bar Review Program

for the 2015 Bar Exams

ChanRobles Internet Bar Review

backtotopWhat is ChanRobles Professional Review, Inc.?

ChanRobles Professional Review, Inc., is a duly registered corporate entity solely devoted to providing professional review courses on the internet. It is a member of the ChanRobles Professional Group which, for more than 15 years now, has been providing free on-line legal resources through the world-renowned ChanRobles Virtual Law Library and has been hosting Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) seminars for thousands of lawyers through the ChanRobles Lawnet, Inc.

The ChanRobles Professional Review, Inc. seeks to be the pioneer in the Philippines in providing the first-ever internet-based bar review course through its website at:

http://www.chanroblesbar.com

backtotopWhat makes the bar review program offered by ChanRobles Professional Review, Inc. different from other bar review courses?

The ChanRobles Internet Bar Review is the first and only bar review course in the Philippines whose materials are made available on-line.

With the reformatting of the Bar Examinations by the Supreme Court starting in 2011 where definitive topics are prescribed under a uniform Syllabus for every bar subject, the traditional classroom-type bar review courses have somewhat been rendered archaic, not to mention, expensive, tedious and cumbersome.

With the latest advances in internet technology, an internet-based bar review course is better suited and more appropriate to meet and service the needs of bar reviewees who are preparing for the newly reformatted Bar Examinations.

While the traditional classroom-type bar reviews may teach the same substantive law, only ChanRobles Internet Bar Review provides for greater home study flexibility and convenience, comprehensive bar review materials available to the bar reviewees on a 24/7 basis and more personal attention.

Dressing up to attend the classroom bar review course, cruising through long-winding and back-breaking heavy traffic, rushing to meet the inflexible schedules of the lectures, sitting in a crowded classroom, listening to the lectures at unholy hours, not to mention the appurtenant expenses and costs of attending the sessions, are the real-world experiences which the bar reviewees of old had to contend with. These experiences actually are the very same reasons that make an internet-based bar review course at this age and clime not only most compelling and imperative but the only way to survive the gruelling and arduous road to passing the bar exams.


backtotopWhen is the official launching/commencement of the bar review course for the 2015 Bar Examinations?

The first run of the ChanRobles Internet Bar Review was made for the 2011 Bar Examinations where two (2) bar topnotchers and 138 bar passers took their bar review with us.

The second run of the ChanRobles Internet Bar Review was made for the 2012 Bar Examinations where five (5) bar topnotchers and 162 bar passers took their bar review with us.

The second run of the ChanRobles Internet Bar Review was made for the 2013 Bar Examinations where two (2) bar topnotchers and 185 bar passers took their bar review with us.

The third run was for the 2014 Bar Examinations, the results of which will be released sometime during the first quarter of 2015.

We are now on our FIFTH run for the 2015 Bar Examinations which will commence on March 1, 2015 and will end at midnight of the last Sunday (October 24) of the examination month of October, 2015.

backtotopWhat are the bar subjects covered by the Internet Bar Review Course?

All the eight (8) bar subjects of the Philippine Bar Examinations are covered by this Internet Bar Review Course.

backtotopWhat are the additional services that are featured in the Course?

In  addition to the eight (8) bar subjects, the Internet Bar Review Course also features five (5) additional areas with no additional cost, namely:
 

1.   Bar Methods and Techniques;
2.   On-Line Coaching and Mentoring Program - Mock Bar Essay Exams;
3.   Case Digests;
4.   Crafting and answering Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs); and
5.   Preparation of Legal Essays and Trial Memorandum.

Law and Jurisprudence Updates will also be made in the course of the internet bar review leading to the 2015 bar examinations.

backtotopWho are the Bar Reviewers?

The names and credentials of the distinguished bar reviewers for this Third Internet Bar Review Course are found in the index page of the website www.chanroblesbar.com.

backtotopWill there be actual videos of the lectures by the Bar Reviewers?

Yes. The lectures of all the Bar Reviewers are video stream and presented in an easily accessible format.

backtotopCan the videos of the lectures be viewed for a number of times?
 

Yes. This is actually the most significant feature of this kind of review format. Unlike in the non-internet bar review courses, the enrollee in this course has the rare advantage of unlimited rewinding/re-viewing the videotaped lectures in case he/she misses a certain part thereof or fails to catch up with the desired pace.

backtotopWhat is the format of the video stream of lectures?

Since each bar subject has now a definitive topical coverage in accordance with the Syllabi promulgated by the Supreme Court, the lectures are patterned after the topical presentation prescribed under the Syllabi. The enrollee is well-guided in his/her review as the video streams of lectures are cut-up and segmented in accordance with the order of topics as prescribed in the Syllabi. For example, in Labor Law, the lectures on such topics as Unfair Labor Practice (ULP), Strikes, etc., are cut-up or segregated per topic. The enrollee, therefore, has the option to watch all the video stream of lectures from the first to the last topics prescribed under the Syllabi or may proceed to watch directly the particular topic he/she wants to be refreshed on. The enrollee need not watch the entire video stream of lectures for the entire bar subjects all at once.

backtotopWhat are the advantages of the Internet Bar Review over the traditional classroom-type bar review?   

The advantages are enormous:

1.    Great Savings in Time. - The enrollee need not travel to and from the bar review center just to be able to listen to the lectures. The discomfort and inconvenience of travelling through heavy traffic, inclement weather, etc. are avoided.

2.    Big Savings in Money. - Bar reviewees, especially from the provinces, need not go to the cities where bar review classes are held as they can review from the comfort of their homes or offices. Expenses for board and lodging, travel, etc., are avoided.

3.    Benefit of Re-Viewing the Lectures. - Unlike in actual bar review classes where the bar reviewee will never have the opportunity to interrupt the lecturers to request for a re-statement or repeat of certain part of the lectures which he/she failed to intently take note of, in the Internet Bar Review, all that the enrollee has to do is to rewind the lecture videos (which are presented by topic in accordance with the Syllabi and, therefore, manageably short in terms of duration/playtime and downloading), and re-view again the particular part he/she wants to listen to or take note of.

4.    The Internet Bar Review is best suited and the most effective tool for the Bar Exams. – Unlike in the past bar examinations where the bar reviewers are not required to follow a Syllabus per subject and, therefore, are expected to discuss almost everything, the Bar Examinations now are completely different. For purposes of preparing for the Bar Exams, the Supreme Court has prescribed that the Syllabus per bar subject be followed by the bar reviewers. This simply means that the bar reviewers need not discuss other topics that are not covered in the Syllabi. The Syllabi being topic-specific, the lecture videos of the bar reviewers in the ChanRobles Internet Bar Review squarely fit into each topic prescribed in the Syllabi as in fact, the lecture videos are specifically cut-up or divided into the various topics. The enrollees, therefore, will be more focused as they will no longer be bothered by any other subject or topic not found or prescribed in the Syllabi.

5.    Review Anywhere/Anytime, 24/7. – All the lecture videos and materials are accessible anywhere, anytime (24/7) through the enrollees’ computer browser or mobile device such as iPhone, iPad, Android and others at no extra charge or cost.

backtotopIs this in the nature of a "Crash Course?" 

Certainly not. In fact, with the new format of the Bar Examinations, ChanRobles Internet Bar Review Program may be used as the principal bar review course. Our course is complete and no supplemental or extra courses are necessary.

backtotopIs it okay if I take supplemental courses?

For obvious reason, the bar reviewee has the option either to enroll only in the ChanRobles Internet Bar Review or, if he has already enrolled in the traditional classroom-type bar review, to treat the latter as a supplemental course. Reviewing at home, office or in a quiet and peaceful place which provides for greater concentration, focus and reflection is very important to a bar reviewee. Going to the classroom along with so many other bar reviewees and following fixed schedules which the bar reviewees have no way of controlling or changing, may no longer be the mode of reviewing for the present-day bar exams, especially with the advent of the internet which is readily accessible at the bar reviewees’ own time and pace.

As shown in its first and second runs in 2011 and 2012, respectively, some of the enrollees who successfully hurdled the bar exams never enrolled in the traditional bar review format. And those who have enrolled have found the resources of ChanRobles more broad and comprehensive.

backtotopHow current are the bar review materials?

All our bar reviewers have reformatted their respective lectures to be fully compliant with the Syllabi prescribed by the Supreme Court. Their lectures and bar review materials are updated and will be constantly updated in the course of the Internet Bar Review to reflect the latest areas of emphasis in the examinations as well as the newest techniques in answering bar exam questions.

backtotopWhat is the cost of the bar review course? What are the discounts?

Very Early Bird Rate of PhP8,000.00 (Available Only Until November 30, 2014) [See Note Below re additional discount]

At the moment, we do not accept payments through credit cards.

backtotopDo you offer scholarship?

Yes. We offer scholarship (free full tuition) to the TOP 3 Graduates of any law school in the Philippines. A simple certification on this by the law school is all that is required to be entitled to the scholarship.

backtotopCan I enroll on a per subject basis?

backtotopWhen is the start of the 2015 Internet Bar Review Course offering?
 

The 3rd ChanRobles Internet Bar Review Course will officially start on March 1, 2015. By “start” means that the enrollees will have access to all the materials available on-line including, but not limited to, the lecture videos, lecture notes, updates, and the like.

backtotopIs pre-week bar review part of this Course?

No. The reason is that the lecture videos, materials and notes are all well-suited as pre-week materials. As shown by experience in its first, second, third and fourth runs in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, respectively, many of our reviewees no longer attended pre-week courses as they found our resources already sufficient for pre-week purposes. Re-viewing and/or re-reading the videos and materials already available online proved to be more effective than actual pre-week attendance in classroom-type setting.

backtotopHow long does it take to complete the course? 

The entire duration of lecture videos in our database totals more than 1,000 hours. The enrollees are given the opportunity to choose from among the roster of distinguished bar reviewers in a given bar subject. More bar reviewers and lecturers will be added to the roster in the course of the Internet Bar Review.

backtotopWhat are the components of the Internet Bar Review Course?

The Internet Bar Review Course consists of lecture videos of all the featured bar reviewers, lecture materials, updates and multiple choice questions (MCQs). Each of the bar subjects contains specific review outline following the basic course of study. The bar review assignments include watching or listening to lecture videos, reading the bar review materials whose cited laws and cases are searchable thru the database of the ChanRobles Virtual Law Library and practicing answering the MCQs in the interactive Mock Bar Exams per bar subject whose database contains thousands of MCQs in all bar subjects. The full course may be completed in 4 to 5 months or even faster depending on the pace and speed that the enrollee will find convenient and comfortable.

backtotopIn what language are the videos and lectures being conducted/presented?

Since the questions in the bar examinations are formatted, presented and stated in English, all bar review videos and materials are also presented in the English language.

backtotopAre the lectures mine to keep?

All the lecture videos and lecture materials featured in the Internet Bar Review are the proprietary and copyrighted materials of ChanRobles Professional Review, Inc. and, therefore, cannot be copied, duplicated, reproduced, transcribed, distributed, disseminated or sold. 

backtotopCan I print the lecture materials from the website?

As a general rule, no. The reason is that since the bar review materials are in digital format, they cannot be printed and distributed or sold in another format. However, there are lecture notes which are downloadable and the enrollees may thus copy and print them with special permission from the Executive Board of ChanRobles Professional Review, Inc.. But just the same, the reproduction, distribution, dissemination or selling thereof is absolutely enjoined.

backtotopHow is infringement of the copyrighted materials detected?

ChanRobles Professional Review, Inc., through its technical expertise and facilities, scans and continues to scan the World Wide Web (www) to detect and ascertain possible infringement of its copyrights/intellectual property rights over its Internet bar review materials. In the event that an enrollee or any other person or entity copies, duplicates, reproduces, distributes or resells any of the internet bar review materials, ChanRobles Professional Review, Inc. reserves its right to report such violation or infringement of its copyrights/intellectual property rights to the Supreme Court Bar Confidant, without prejudice to possible criminal and civil prosecution.

In the spirit of fairness, we shall not allow hackers and illegal users and sellers of our resources at our expense. In the 2012 run, we have, through the able assistance of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), caught and apprehended a hacker who downloaded our resources and illegally sold the same offline. Cases have been filed in court against the culprit for violation of the E-Commerce Law and infringement of intellectual property rights. Efforts have also been initiated to bar him from ever becoming a lawyer.

backtotopWhat's the internet connection required to access the bar review materials?

The Internet Bar Review Course streams the lecture videos and provide lecture notes for on-line viewing. The enrollee is recommended to have high speed internet access to watch the lecture videos and use the files. The Internet Bar Review Course can be accessed on a desktop or laptop computer browser, an iPad, iPhone or other mobile devices like an Android mobile devices.

For greater ease and convenience, the Internet Bar Review Course requires broadband (cable modem, T-1, DSL, etc.) Internet access. Mobile Devices should use Wi-Fi or 3G or 4G access. A dial-up connection to the internet may not effectively work because of the size of the lecture videos and lecture materials. We recommend an internet connection speed of 1Mbps or higher.

To allow for an effective and easy streaming, enrollees may need to disable local firewalls in their computers. If this is not done, some computers, including publicly accessed computers used in libraries, internet cafes and the like, may not be able to access the internet-based lecture videos and bar review materials.

It must be noted that on-line streams of lecture videos and materials cannot be copied or downloaded. Enrollees may only listen or watch the lecture videos and read printed materials on their computers or mobile devices. Lecture videos found in chanroblesbar.com.ph are all proprietary materials of ChanRobles Professional Review, Inc.
